Google Asks Manufacturers to Delay Google TV Launch

Google has asked manufacturers to delay their launches of Google TV so that it can improve the product after it received lukewarm reviews, according to the New York Times.

Although Google already has a deal with Sony for its Internet TVs, other television makers — Toshiba, LG Electronics and Sharp — were prepared to flaunt their versions of the systems.

But Google has asked the TV makers to delay their introductions, according to people familiar with the company’s plans, so that it can refine the software, which has received a lukewarm reception. The late request caught some of the manufacturers off guard.

The NYT notes that Google has faced the same situation with its launch of Android for tablets and ChromeOS for netbooks.

*thanks iclarified*

Just another thing google isn't good at... I think they should stick with advertisements and search engines!
